What I got: A great understanding of how DirectX works with out someone else's idea of how you should wrap up the DirectX COM. I now have four books on DirectX, this is the only one I even bother looking at anymore.
It's true there are not a lot of "try this" exercises. But on the up side, the whole book has usefull information, unlike others where half the book is just code you can find on the CD anyway.
If you want to learn DirectX with out all the clutter that other books contain, get this book!
